About us

Gelenkwellenfabrik Wilhelm Sass, a firm now in the third generation of ownership, has devoted itself to jointed shaft engineering for over 80 years.

A completely new building was necessary in 1999 due to continuous growth and the increasing demands of customers. Since then, Stapelfeld in the east of Hamburg has been home to a highly qualified team of staff, who cater for your requirements on universal joint shafts for all applications and industrial sectors: for example, construction machinery, printing equipment, ships, production systems or lifting gear. Just state your requirements and you will be provided with jointed shafts that are tailored to your needs in every detail.

All jointed shafts are manufactured on high-tech machinery. Design and manufacture of each shaft is state of the art and complies with the applicable ISO standards and all current safety regulations. Only carefully selected quality materials from leading suppliers are used for production.

You too should take advantage of the service offered by an owner-operated firm, whose top priority is your satisfaction.
